WhatsApp to soon get Facebook integration

The messaging app WhatsApp will soon provide its users with a feature to integrate their Facebook account with the application. It is working on adding end-to-end encryption to its chats.

According to leaked screenshots shared by Android developer Javier Santos, the company is intending to allow its users to link the messaging service with their Facebook account. The users will be given a choice to share their WhastApp account information with Facebook.

Earlier this month, WhatsApp co-founder Jan Koum, said about implementing the end-to-end encryption. Speaking at the annual Digital-Life-Design (DLD) conference in Munich, Koum said, "We are a couple of months away from calling it done. Soon we will be able to talk more about this."

The messages with end-to-end encryption cannot be read by anyone including WhatsApp, ensuring device-level security. The encryption will be applicable on both chats and calls.

The integration feature will share WhatsApp account information with Facebook in order to improve Facebook experiences.
